hopes onto barack obama. the nobel peace prize committee did too right after the election. so we know it's the marriage versus first date proposition. second, four years ago the economic collapse helped him. now, he was there to save it. now the economic collapse hurt him and he was able to say, "look, it's been bad, but it's going to get better. or it could have been worse." and third, i think in the racial dynamics, the fact that he was able to overcome them is impressive. a very sophisticated republican ad was, "it's okay if you don't vote for him again this time." you know, you gave him a chance. we gave these people their opportunity. we see how they're doing. and i think there was a sort of permission to white americans to not feel racist in voting against him this time. and he was able to overcome that, too. >> you said it was important for african americans that obama in particular was reelected. why? >> my colleague and friend ta-nehisi coates at "the atlantic," who's a wonderful african american writer based here in new york argued that of course there was this historic fron

controversy before it has even begun. patchari raksawong in bangkok has the story. >>> president obama will visit thailand, myanmar, and cambodia on his first overseas trip since winning re-election earlier this month. now, myanmar is the destination that's making some observers unhappy. human rights groups say it's just too soon and the country's small steps towards democracy don't yet deserve a visit from the president of the united states. obama's national security adviser, tom donilon, defended the trip. he says it will advance the cause of reform in myanmar. >> the president's visit this time reflects his conviction that engagement is the best way to encourage burmese authorities to further action. >> human rights groups oppose the visit. they say the former pariah state has not achieved true democratic reform and ethnic minorities continue to face persecution. obama will meet his counterpart thein sein. donilon stressed obama will raise the issue of violence with against muslim rohina with myanmar's leaders. a week of violence last month claimed about 90 lives according to the of
